How the iPad Is Changing Retail POS Systems
The face of retail point-of-sale (POS) systems has changed dramatically over the last couple years. iPad technologies, for example, have become integrated into

Provia Proves Its Way To Success


While not necessarily blossoming like some bigger and more visible SCE peers, Provia certainly still has its 'proven way' to differentiate its value proposition.

example receipts  seemingly uncorrelated events. An example of how ViaView can monitor for patterns of events over time would be repeatedly short-shipping the same client multiple times. While each individual short-shipment might trigger a ViaView alert, the product also monitors the bigger picture and would alert users to the more important repetitive pattern emerging and allow for a faster resolution of the root cause of the problem. Last but not least, in April, Provia announced the general availability of the latest Read More

abas ERP Partners for Quality Management Software


abas-USA and Pickert & Partner GmbH recently announced a new partnership, which will integrate the Pickert RQM quality management system (QMS) with abas ERP. The integration of these enterprise systems aims to support quality standards through most production-related processes across the entire value chain from the enterprise resource planning (ERP) system to machine controls.

As an example, abas has seen requirements for ISO9001:2008, ISO TS 16949:2002, QS 9000, VDA 6.1, VDA 6.4, FDA 21 CFR 11, EN 29001, 9342 EWG, ISO 13485, EN 9001 Aerospace Series, and AQAP 2110. Each of these elaborate standards has specific reporting requirements, data collection devices (e.g., machine readers, calibration devices, spectrometers, and chemical analysis readers), etc.   I am not sure whether any ERP vendor can maintain these standards and, more importantly, keep up with Read More

A Primer on Lean Manufacturing Using Microsoft Dynamics AX: Case Studies


To enable organizations to support lean and traditional manufacturing practices in a single system, Microsoft Dynamics AX has incorporated lean manufacturing constructs into its package. Several case studies illustrate the use of kanbans in various lean environments.

Other examples include A work cell produces items stemming from kanban and production order demands, typically during the transition period from traditional to lean. The production schedule for this work cell can incorporate kanban tickets and planned production orders, and can support reporting of kanban completions and production order completions. It is Read More

Managing Your Supply Chain Using Microsoft Axapta: A Book Excerpt Part Two: Understanding Planning Calculations


The S&OP game plans drive coordination of supply chain activities based on planning calculations. The primary coordination engine-termed the master scheduling task-generates a set of requirements data and suggested action messages, and the system supports multiple sets of requirements data for simulation purposes. Further explanation starts with a review of all demands and supplies considered by planning logic, and then proceeds to an overview of the planning calculations.

example receipts  realistic planned order, for example, reflects the item's lead-time and a start date no earlier than today's date. A planned production order reflects variable lead-time and optional consideration about finite material and capacity. When a requirement date cannot be met, the system suggests a projected completion date. Automatic Vendor Assignment for Planned Purchase Orders . The suggested vendor for a planned purchase order can be based on purchase price trade agreement information, using either the Read More

Aligning Information Technology with Corporate Strategy


Aligning information technology (IT) with corporate strategy is key to maximizing the business impact of IT investments. Tree Top's structured process of reviewing proposed IT investments will allow an enterprise to understand this alignment, and prioritize investments.

Improvement estimates were made by the executives and associated team members who owned each business process. They estimated improvement goals at three levels: an optimistic goal; what they really expected to happen; and a conservative goal. Using the mapping data, OA converted the improvement of the specific KPI into financial impact. It considered the impact to revenue, costs, and working ca Read More

Acronyms Can Simplify Your Life, or Drive You Insane


Acronyms seem really convenient, at first. It’s great using ERP instead of enterprise resource planning, for example. You save precious time (not typing enterprise resource planning a million times) and there’s no way your reader won’t understand what ERP means, right? Well, for ERP this may be true, but all acronyms are not as tidy as they appear. What about BPM, for example? Does it

Continuous Improvement Offers CMMS Maintenance Benefits


Computer maintenance management system (CMMS) packages are excellent tools for collecting, analyzing, and reporting data and can offer insight into a process’ problem. Critical success factors for the effective use for the CMMS involves clear support from management and measurable drivers involving time, quality, and cost.

Benchmarking: How Am I Really Performing?


Benchmarking, as defined by the dictionary, is "a standard against which something can be measured or assessed." But what is benchmarking? What does it do? Why should I do it? What do I benchmark? And how can it help me?

example receipts  not absolute numbers. For example, imagine if we told you that a good sales benchmark is $900,000. What would that tell you if you were operating a small store with only 800 square feet of selling space? It is almost impossible for a store that size to achieve sales of $900,000! A more realistic number for an 800-square-foot store would be sales of $400,000. So using the total sales number is really not a very good idea. A better way is to make the measure more fair is by using sales per square foot. Read More

The Why of Data Collection


Data collection systems work; however, they require a investment in technology. Before the investment can be justified, we need to understand why a data collection system may be preferable to people with clipboards.

example receipts  the event happens. An example of this would be forwarding case counts to the production control system as the case goes past the scanner. An alternative example could include a selection of inventory for a shipment gained through a bar code reader on the forklift, and can be immediately used to update both the inventory and the order status. As an aside, when the need is termed real time , we should ask what that really means. It often means as soon as the person needs it , which could be either once a Read More

Business Benefits to FSM-CRM-ERP Systems Integration


These days everything starts with the customer and his or her experience. From this perspective—of the customer experience—the service sector must ensure fluency in its operations so that the customer is satisfied and does not go to social media to publicly vent or complain. Certain industries such as manufacturing and services industries, such as utilities and insurance, are some of the most

One challenge to overcome when integrating FSM software with both ERP and CRM systems from a customer data perspective is making sure that the data is clean (no duplications, no incompletes, etc.), coherent, and congruent. In addition, data must be readily accessed (latency as a result of integration Read More

Evolution to Revolution: The Test Automation Maturity Curve


The evolution of test automation towards data-driven and key/action word frameworks reflects the realization that the process becomes more efficient if there is less code to develop and maintain. Instead of taking twenty years to evolve towards efficiency, you can take a revolutionary leap with a code-free approach that makes it easier to implement, manage, and maintain automated tests.

example receipts  reporting. Below is an example of a key/action word test, where the Test Case column contains a list of keywords and the following columns provide the data. In this approach, the keyword or action word is written in a scripting language and is specific to the application under test. In some cases, the script code is generated automatically from building blocks that are then enhanced with additional code to perform decision-making and other logic tasks. In the example above, add product and check Read More

Why Systems Fail - The Dead-end of Dirty Data


If your data does not reflect reality, the system can never be effective. In today’s world of collaboration, showing a trading partner dirty data is giving them the wrong message and tearing down the trust called for in a collaborating partnership.

example receipts  case of our inventory example, one of the potentially many transactions that change the on-hand data could have been inaccurate. For example, a receipt may have had an incorrect quantity. Alternatively, the physical act may have been flawed, for example, an order called for 100 units to be picked, the transaction may have been recorded as 100 but the physical picking resulted in more or less than 100 being picked. Perhaps worse, when the material was placed in a location within the warehouse, the Read More

As an example given by SAP, traditional manufacturing requirements planning (MRP) processes that are run overnight at thousands of manufacturing businesses now can be calculated within seconds or minutes, depending on the data volume. This will immediately bring manufacturers into real-time planning procedures, and, as a result, batch-based planning and batch manufacturing may be entirely retracted. The software is powerful enough to trace and plan a single inventory unit and single Read More
